Government Contracts in Maryland from the Perspective of a Maryland Lawyer.
Currently practicing in the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia area) has resulted in our firm becoming more required to be familiar with and experienced in Federal and Government Contracts. The Federal Government performs acquisition and procurements which are reduced to “Federal Contracts”. The guidebook for these types of dealings is provided in what is called the Federal Acquisition Regulations (or “FAR” for short). This is the Encyclopedia book that Federal Contractors and the Federal Government uses religiously. It contains provisions and instructions on how should Contracts be performed and negotiated. The A through Z is discussed here. To understand the Contract, you may have to read and review the FAR. The best place to read the FAR is www.acquisition.gov In instances where you do not understand the provision or clause, it may be best to reach out our law firm to assist you.
Not only is there the FAR to have to worry about, but in instances where you deal with the State of Maryland or cities or municipalities within Maryland, another authority is usually cited. State and Local Contracts in Maryland adopt and may rely upon the Code of Maryland Annotated Regulations (COMAR). You can find the COMAR here:
